“I read this book on marriage and this an honest impression of mine: it blew me away. I was very glad to write the foreword to this book because it was probably one of the most honest looks at the joys and struggles of marriage, a marriage between two flawed people who are living in a fallen world who are the sons and daughters of a faithful God. You”re selling yourself short if you don”t read this book. Don”t read it only if you”re married. Everyone should read this book because it has so much to say about the struggles that happen when sinners live near sinners; and how God rescues us by His grace and gives us the possibility of having good relationships…This is the best book on marriage I have ever read.“
Paul D. Tripp, President of Paul Tripp Ministries and Adjunct Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary
The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name by Sally Lloyd-Jones
“I would urge not just families with young children to get this book, but every Christian–from pew warmers, to ministry leaders, seminarians and even theologians! Sally Lloyd-Jones has captured the heart of what it means to find Christ in all the scriptures, and has made clear even to little children that all God”s revelation has been about Jesus from the beginning–a truth not all that commonly recognized even among the very learned.”
- Rev. Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York
Relationships: A Mess Worth Making by Tim Lane and Paul Tripp
“Tim Lane and Paul Tripp”s Relationships: A Mess Worth Making is a straightforward and encouraging book about a biblical perspective on relationships. This is no quick-fix guide to make relationships “work for you,” but a call to see how the inevitable struggles in all our relationships have a God-designed redemptive purpose. From reading this book I saw more clearly how relationships become idolatrous when we see them as an end in themselves, not a means for God to work his purposes. We see how relationships expose our weaknesses so the Lord can begin to renew us in his image and work more effectively in and through us. I commend Lane and Tripp for penetrating the complexities of our fallen relationships and showing us how the Lord is in the midst of them.” - Peter Enns, Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Hermeneutics, Westminster Theological Seminary
God”s Big Picture: Tracing the Storyline of the Bible by Vaughn Roberts
“God’s Big Picture sets out to help readers to find the one great story that God is telling in the Scriptures, the story that sets everything in its right place. Roberts agrees with Graeme Goldsworthy that the central character of this story is Jesus Christ and its theme is the Kingdom of God, defined as “God’s people in God’s place under God’s rule and blessing.” God’s Big Picture will serve as an excellent introduction to the Bible for anyone perplexed or overwhelmed by its seeming breadth and diversity. What comes across clearly throughout is not only a love for the Scriptures but also a deep passion for the Christ to whom they point.” - Mark Traphagen, Westminster Bookstore Staff
“A wonderful application of the old Gaelic saying, “God strikes straight blows with crooked sticks.” As inadequate as we are, God is eager to use us to help others change. The more you apply the biblical principles discussed in this book, the more readily you will fit into his mighty hand.”
Ken Sande, author of The Peacemaker
How People Change by Timothy Lane and Paul David Tripp
“This book is applied theology. It’s about heat, thorns, the cross, and fruit. It’s about present grace. In sixteen short and well-illustrated chapters, the wonderful prospect of change for the good is held out for the reader. We are called to consider our circumstances and our responses to them, and beneath that to examine our hearts’ desires and to turn afresh to Christ’s cross.”
Mark Dever, Pastor Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.
“Readable and refreshing . . . goes to the heart of an issue immobilizing the church. Exposes and repudiates the trivia of therapeutic theology with wisdom and compassion.”
Susan Hunt, author of Heirs of the Covenant
Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions edited by Arthur Bennett
“The Valley of Vision is, in my opinion, the finest devotional volume available in the English language. The thoughts behind these prayers come from such men as Richard Baxter, John Bunyan, Thomas Watson, Isaac Watts, and even Charles Spurgeon, but their wording is from Canon Arthur Bennett. It is both easy and delightful to make them our own.”
William Shishko, Orthodox Presbyterian Church pastor (from opc.org)
Shepherding a Child”s Heart by Tedd Tripp
“Dr. Tripp’s material on parenting is the clearest, most biblically framed, and most helpful that I have ever encountered. It has become the backbone of my own parenting. I am not alone, either. His seminar tapes are by far the most frequently requested biblical teaching material among my students, counselees, and friends.”
Dr. Ed Welch, Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary and author of Depression: A Stubborn Darkness.
“A children”s Bible usually refers to a book containing Bible stories rewritten for children. Not in this instance. This Childrens Bible includes the entire ESV text together with illustrations and study helps designed for children. The study helps, which appear at the end of the Bible, are exceptional introductions to biblical truth and basic Christian practices such as Bible reading and prayer. The theological perspective is consistently evangelical and Reformed. Parents should note that the illustrations do include renderings of Jesus.”
Matthew Harmon, Westminster Bookstore Staff
